The Lady Gaga new album is about to drop next month. The singer made the announcement herself, a few days after the depressing news of her breakup with fiancé actor Taylor Kinney.
The Lady Gaga new album, titled Joanne , is set to be released on October 21. The Bad Romance hitmaker said her forthcoming album was named after her late aunt who died from lupus at the age of 19. Gaga’s middle name is also Joanne. She was born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta. Her family owns the Italian restaurant Joanne Trattoria in New York, Los Angeles Times noted.
In an interview with Zane Lowe on the Beats 1 show, Gaga said the album is all about her aunt Joanne. She said the pain of losing her aunt made her and her family strong. Joanne is her fifth album after her 2013’s Artpop.
Gaga said the album will be done in the next 48 hours. The Born This Way singer also revealed the regular edition of her new LP contains 11 songs, while the deluxe edition will have 14 tracks. She, however, told Lowe that she was still doing some finishing touches on Joanne and its tracklist may still change.
The singer just released the first track of the album, Perfect Illusion, last week. She also teased the Perfect Illusion video is coming out very soon. So far, the confirmed tracks in the upcoming Joanne album are as follows:
- Perfect Illusion
- John Wayne (featuring Josh Homme)
- Sinner’s Prayer (featuring Father John Misty)
- Hey Girl (featuring Florence Welch and The Machine)
- Ayo (a tribute to a DJ)
The singer also revealed some details about a few tracks on Joanne. Gaga teased the album has some Bollywood influences and country music as well. Hillary Lindsey, the songwriter behind Little Big Town’s Girl Crush and Carrie Underwood’s Jesus, Take the Wheel, also collaborated with Gaga.
